Over the holidays, I grabbed my cell and took a photo of my parent’s beautiful orange tree. Unfortunately, these oranges are bitter. They look beautiful, but the only serve to work as a marinade for meat, or one could make a bitter marmalade from them. I can only stare at them, enjoy their beauty, and think, “Why are you not sweet?”

I meant to post this photo a few weeks back, but I got side tracked with the holidays, and all that was going on. It is one of the most vibrant colors of red leaves I have ever seen in Houston. We truly had four seasons this year.  Enjoy!

As I looked outside this evening, I noticed the doves starting to settle in, fluffing their feathers, and preparing for the 19 degree overnight temperatures. This is really cold for Houston, Texas. It got me to thinking,”Look at them! They will sit overnight, fluffed, warm, and survive. God provides a way for them.” We are much more valuable, so don’t worry. Your needs will be covered. It may look as if all hope is gone, but I tell you just as these birds survive, so will you in your toughest times. Never lose faith!

Matthew 6:26

New International Version (NIV) 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
